Noise for the Needy
From June 7-12 you can support Real Change with one simple act: going to see a concert. This year’s Noise for the Needy (NFTN) music festival is spotlighting the newspaper aimed at empowering homeless individuals. Since 2004, NFTN has helped raise more than $100,000 for local non-profit organizations. Past beneficiaries include Teen Feed, New Beginnings, Urban Rest Stop, and Parent Trust of Washington. A variety of venues all over the city will host 21 shows over six days. Highlights include a dance party at Belltown’s Underground Events Center with Soft Metals, Ononos, and eight other bands, as well as an all-ages show at the Vera Project with Ramona Falls and Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band. For those wanting a more interactive experience, The Crescent Lounge will host Karaoke for the Needy on June 8 and donate a portion of the bar sales to NFTN. Tickets for all NFTN shows will go on sale the week of May 2. Interested in helping out? Visit the NFTN volunteer page for more information on how to get involved.
